How would you answer this question: â€œI love to treat myself to what indulgence?â€ This is one of 300 questions in a wonderful conversation game called Talk In A Box. If you watch my first YouTube video here (or see my previous post) youâ€™ll see what my answer is to this question!
The creator of Talk In A Box is Stan Scott. Due to the confidential nature of my work, I donâ€™t often get to brag on my wonderful clients. However, one of my clients wants the world to know about his wonderful creation. I was a customer and a fan of Talk In A Box even before he hired me.
Like many people, Stan got a great idea for a product. It was an outcome of his mission as a professional facilitator to help change the world through powerful conversation. He worked for several years refining his concept and creating the game. He had it professionally designed, raised the capital and got Talk In A Box produced.
Thatâ€™s a lot more than most people who have a â€œgreat idea,â€ but never do anything with it. Now, Stan is ready to have his product reach a wide audience.
So whatâ€™s one of your favorite indulgences?
What song reminds you of a specific event or time in your life?
What is an edge that youâ€™re interested in exploring?
What is it that you are glad is not the way it used to be?
When I hear your answers to these questions, I will know you better than I do now. You will be much more of a real person to me.
You can play Talk In A Box with your spouse, partner, growing or grown children, other family members, friends or colleagues. I went camping recently with an old friend and we answered a few questions before nodding off to sleep in our tent (see photo).
And you can play it at coffee shops, cafes, even pubs, at the beach or around a campfire, traveling on an airplane or on a cruise, at a party, a family reunion or on a retreat, before sleep with your spouse, or during holiday gatherings. All for less than the cost of dinner and a movie.
As a Talk In A Box player, you are not asked to win, to be faster, more knowledgeable, more creative, more expressive, more witty, or more lucky. Youâ€™re simply invited to show-up, be curious and listen, reflect and express yourself authentically, respect yourself and others, and laugh at yourself and with others. Every player can be a winner, enjoying the prize of connected and deepened human relationships.
Iâ€™ve had a lot of fun playing this game. I invite you to check it out, too, at here.
